Spin it Back Saturday: 12th Planet – ‘Corner Pocket’

SMOG label founder and dubstep ambassador 12th Planet has trudged ahead to deliver his head-whipping, neck-snapping sound ever since the beginning, which was jump-started from collaborations with Skrillex and Kill the Noise. Since then 12th Planet has become a household name in dubstep, with official releases on Interscope, Mad Decent, Monstercat, and OWSLA and stops at major festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, EDC, HARD, and Ultra. His founding-father title doesn’t translate as an antique sound; instead, 12th Planet continues to remain one of the most relevant figures in the industry, even launching a riddim label, Discipline Records. 12th Planet still drops heat, but we must not forget about his old embers still burning bright – let’s Spin it Back to one of his bangers, “Corner Pocket.”

“Corner Pocket” snaps and whips like a flag in the storm, and hardly touches down for any wet bass until the drop, which is saturated in smoggy rhythm and grimy distortions. The tracks varietal bass and robust sound design is refreshing, even from eight years ago, compared to static kick-snare dubstep that often clogs the bass world. From his start to now, 12th Planet shows the amateurs how to drop the bass.

12th Planet is raising the bar by bringing his Swamplex Next Level Tour to Sunbar on March 20th. Get your tickets here.
